The Shakri man. I want to see them again. I think they'd make a formidable foe given another appearance, they had quite the plan in The Power of Three but were defeated in a pretty unsatisfying manner for the scale of threat they built up. I'd like to see them again, maybe we could see The Tally with them this time. :)

and the relief of it, and so she kissed me.
Rory: And you kissed her back.

For Smith, I always get a laugh from this:
Amy: So, what's wrong with me?
River: Nothing. You're fine.
The Doctor: Everything. You're dying.
The Doctor: Yes, you're right. If we lie to her she'll get all better! Right. Amy, Amy, Amy. What's the matter with Amelia? Something's in her eye. What does that mean? Does it mean anything?
The Doctor: Busy.
The Doctor: Course you're scared. You're dying. Shut up.
Since I voted Smith, I thought I'd show Eccleston some love, his humour was absolutely outstanding! Eccleston has great comedic timing.
Jackie: So, what's that website?
Mickey: All the secret information known to mankind. See, they've known about aliens for years, they just kept us in the dark.
The Doctor: Mickey, you were born in the dark!
XD Always makes me laugh!
This is my final. I simply adore both of these Doctor's. They're such different portrayals that you can't compare them. I'm backing these two when they're up against the rest, but against each other I have to go for Matt Smith. He's my favourite Doctor at the end of the day and I love him so much. He's got me into the show and had such an influence on me. As much as I love Eccleston, who comes a close second, Matt Smith will always be my favourite Doctor.

Hurt did a stellar job, but David Tennant was brilliant. His Doctor is by no means perfect, but he wasn't supposed to be and I think he's great on the whole. So I vote Tennant.

That's nice to hear him say, and it's nice to hear from him in general to be honest. He makes a good point about intellect and accent, I hadn't really thought about it before but thinking about it now I do agree with him. I'll always remember his Doctor, Chris got it absolutely spot on and his performance was amazing, and he showcased just how talented an actor he is. He's been brilliant in everything he's done since this show, and I look forward to seeing his next show. I'm really looking forward to Safe House; it looks really good and has a great cast.

He's a class writer who's more than capable of pulling something out of the bag and coming up with new ideas and interesting stories. I don't think the BBC should get rid of him, he's done so much for the show and still has it going so strongly, it'd be mad to change it just for the sake of change. Whilst there are people who aren't a fan of his work on the show, it surely can't be denied that he has made the show massive and popular around the world, and is raking in millions for the BBC. Moffat's a smart man, he'll know when he's took it as far as he can and will happily move on if he thought someone could do a better job than him or if he feels his work isn't up to standard. I think he'll do Series 10 and then leave, he said a year or so ago that he's close to his end than beginning on the show. But you don't change a winning formula, and Moffat has worked wonders for Doctor Who.
1 week ago on Should Series 9 Be Moffat’s Last?
I swear I heard that Moff wanted an older actor to play the Doctor after David, but Matt was just too good to turn down? I don't think someone like him was sought after by the BBC, so unless I'm wrong (which is highly possible, I generally am), it's a bit wrong to say Matt was chosen so they could get younger viewers in and to appeal to the audience, he was just chosen because he smashed every audition. My apologies in advance if I am indeed wrong or have misinterpreted what you're saying. :)
1 week, 1 day ago on Series 8: The Long Regeneration
Matt Smith is my favourite Doctor. He's the guy that got me hooked on the show and Matt is the reason I started watching Doctor Who in the first place. He brought such enthusiasm and a great energy to the show. Matt brought out every side of the Doctor. He showed his youthful, childlike side, his age (Matt Smith was amazing and showing the weight of 1000 years with just a look of his eyes) as well as his dark side which he desperately wanted to suppress. It was great to see his Doctor develop as a character and Matt Smith as an actor. He just understood the character and was a great ambassador for the show. It's such a shame he got so much stick when he got the role, but it was great to see him overcome it and gain his own fans. He'll always have my respect for how he handled all that and conducted himself in the public eye, and that's throughout his tenure. I want to keep this short, because if I start talking about Matt Smith and his Doctor too much I wouldn't stop aha! All I'll say is I love this Doctor, I'll always remember him and am grateful to have had the privilege to watch him develop for four years. Matt Smith was amazing.
1 week, 1 day ago on Doctor of the Decade: Rate the Eleventh Doctor
David Tennant doesn't get anywhere near enough credit for his ability to show the age of the Doctor in my opinion. I really believe he's 900 years old and his eyes just let you know he's been through so much. His performances are brilliant. I hate it when people say he's only loved because he's young and romantic etc.. because there's so much more to him than that, at least in my opinion. David is a fantastic actor and was an absolutely brilliant Doctor. He's not my favourite Doctor, but I do think he's a great one. The main thing I love about this Doctor is Tennant's obvious love of what he's doing; that enthusiasm and sheer happiness just rubbed off on everyone around him. His smile's infectious and you can just tell he was loving it all, which was great to see.

Top article :) I do like the prison break idea, it could be used as the basis of a series arc. You start off with the Doctor and companion in prison, just been put there, and over the course of an opening episode/two parter, they cleverly break out with the help of others, who could escape as well. Then over the course of the series revolves around them being hunted across the universe and being forced to be discreet and stay dark. But whenever they rock up somewhere, something mental happens so we can have an entertaining Doctor Who episode. At the end of a few episodes, we see the guy who runs the prison, who arrives after the Doctor and his companion have left. Also, every now and then, every 2-3 episodes, we get a hint of why they're in prison, maybe with a mystery of who's fault it was thrown in there too, so we don't know who to trust. And then in the finale, all kinds of s*** goes down, as they're found by the person who runs the prison, who has a personal vendetta against them for some reason which I can't think of and also wants them because they broke out of prison. He/she/it could also have recruited some of the villains the Doctor encountered along the way to help get them, in a way that bends the law if necessary. We find out why they were in prison, who's fault it really was (maybe neither, they were framed, and a theme of the series could be about trust), who the person who runs the prison is and why he wants to get them so much. They get defeated in some way by the Doctor and that's about it. There are a few kinks obviously, I just thought of this now aha! I think it could make for a good series potentially, with themes of trust and other stuff going on, I think it could be a good arc. Top article again :)

I really liked the series splits personally, especially series 7. It made perfect sense giving time after a companion exit for the Doctor to have that grieving period and allow the fans to move on and get excited for the new companion. Plus it worked from Snowmen to Bells because it put us in the Doctor's shoes; he spent all that time going crazy trying to work out who Clara was, and so did we! XD

Great idea for an article series, and a very well written part one :) I'd rank the pre title sequence from The Big Bang quite high myself. I love all the stuff with Amelia, and about there being no stars, seeing the effect (affect?) that the events from the past are having. Plus there's the Pandorica being in the museum, and I was so surprised to see Amy in the Pandorica when it opened! "Ok kid. This is where it gets complicated." I was so confused aha!

@supermoff I think the fact it's got this far proves it's popular and has plenty recognition to be fair. I do love it myself, Canton's just the coolest Doctor Who character, with plenty of sass in abundance.
I vote Mummy on the Orient Express. I find Listen one of the most overrated pieces of TV I've seen, I don't think it's anywhere near as good as it's made out to be. I don't get the adoration that surrounds it at all. Whereas Mummy on the Orient Express, on the whole, is a fantastic episode I feel, with a particularly strong 20 minutes or so in there in my opinion. I think the Doctor's scene with the Mummy is awesome.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #11
I think Psi summed it up well, by labeling it "professional detachment". Capaldi's Doctor isn't cold and heartless, he just has to distance himself from letting his emotions rule his thinking so he doesn't make mistakes and can get the job done. Doctor's care every time they lose a patient, but if they don't move past it quickly and push it to the back of their minds until their job is done, another patient could end up dying or have something bad happen to them because their Doctor is, for want of a better word, distracted. After having two incarnations who have struggled with letting their emotions ruling their actions, and making mistakes because of it and costing people their lives, it makes sense for this Doctor to close himself off a bit more, and go into a professional detachment state of mind in my opinion.
1 month ago on The Twelfth Doctor: A Bad Man With A Box?
I really like Turn Left, but I had to vote for Midnight here. It's a fantastic episode that is terrifically acted with a fantastic script and shows that you don't need throw loads and loads of money at something to get something special. Turn Left is really great, but Midnight is in another league I feel.
1 month ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #7
I quite liked Psi. He seemed like a good character with some depth and potential to me, and he seemed to form a quick bond and friendship with Clara, as well as getting on with the Doctor, eventually, and not being afraid to stand up to him. Plus Jonathan Bailey is a very good actor.
1 month, 1 week ago on 5 Characters From Series 8 That Should Be In Series 9
For me, I didn't like Series 8. I don't mind Capaldi's Doctor, but that kind of character is getting played a lot these days now and it just feels a bit familiar to me. I still don't hate him though and he's not the reason for me losing touch and love with the show now. For me it was the stories, bar two I thought every episode of the last series was poor. I thought the whole series was just depressing and dull. I didn't like the arc at all, and how it was handled, and I'm not a fan of Missy. Plus this last series has made me hate Clara, which annoys me because I loved her in Series 7 and the two specials. There's not really anything someone can say that would make me like Series 8, it just wasn't for me. The only things I liked about it were Time Heist, the last 20ish minutes of Mummy on the Orient Express and Danny. I'm sticking with the show though, because it can always change and it's helped me so much in the past I don't want to just abandon it at the first hurdle, as sad as that may sound. It does hurt me a bit, to think about how much I adored the show from 2010-2013, to how differently I feel now. Oh well.
1 month, 1 week ago on Doctor Why Bother?
I'm glad we didn't have a longer running time in Flatline, as it was well paced, and I don't think learning what the Boneless' actual motivations were (whether they were just evil and wanted to ill humans or didn't know they were killing hem etc). Sometimes not knowing is the best thing in my opinion.
1 month, 1 week ago on Why More Two-Parters Is A Good Thing
I agree with Moffat, it has become a bit predictable over the last few years. I've always felt there should be more cliffhanger type things in single episodes, no necessarily massive ones and not all the time, but I feel it ties the series together a bit better personally, and gives it more momentum. I think we get a few too many standalone episodes these days, and it has become a bit predictable.
1 month, 1 week ago on Moffat Explains Series 9 Two-Parter Increase
7, 5, 3, and 3 isn't my lowest score of this series sadly. The worst series of the revival for me by some distance, I only liked two episodes, and those don't come anywhere near my favourites. This was the start of a truly horribly year for the show in my eyes, completely butchered my love for the show. There are just so many things I don't like about it. I suppose fair is fair though, I loved the Matt Smith era, whilst others hated it and felt like I do now, so it's only fair really. I'm glad that the majority love this series though, it's still nice to see others have such an excitement and love for the show. Capaldi is a great actor and I have the utmost respect for him, but Series 8 just didn't do it for me.

The Spider Germs were poorly executed in my opinion. Big spiders had the potential to be really scary, and could have easily been a threat in their own right, but when Courtney zapped them with Dettol they wee just kind of forgotten, and it made them seem a bit weak in my opinion. Everyone was very excited to see what they'd do with them, and other than a couple of jump scares I think they were poorly utilised, and having an infestation of big, alien spiders could have been a very scary monster, and could have won this pol if done better I think. It's a shame.
